Linked with Love: Our First Dance

We had the guests take their seats and mingle a bit before we made our “grand entrance.” Although the entrance is a big deal for many couples, we kept it very simple. Our DJ announced our entrance (“Please welcome the newlywed Mr. & Mrs. Bracelet”) and we made our way to the dance floor at the other end of the room.



Once in position, you could hear the first strains of our first dance song, “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri, floating through the room. We made sure to take a dance lesson before our wedding to help Mr. Bracelet learn the ropes (I have several years of dance experience). It definitely helped us take the waltz from normal to “ooooh” with some added flourishes.






And you can even see us dance in moving pictures!

The only minor hiccup was that my precious dance shoes were nowhere to be found at the reception. MOH R had strategically placed them earlier and couldn’t find them. Oh well, what’s a girl to do? Dance with her fancy high heels (hence the clunk clunk in the video). It turned out later that night that the bar staff had taken the shoe bag and put it in the storage room and forgot to tell us about it.

What kind of entrance and first dance are you planning/ did you have?
